Boston, MA, September 12, 2023 — OriginPoint, a digitally driven mortgage origination joint venture between Compass, Inc. (NYSE: COMP) and Guaranteed Rate, Inc. (“Guaranteed Rate”), is now live with fully digital eClosing from Stavvy. OriginPoint is the first of Guaranteed Rate’s brands to go live with Stavvy since the partnership was announced in October 2022.
By leveraging Stavvy’s platform, OriginPoint can provide borrowers the convenience of fully digital eClosing in a safe and secure environment. This is OriginPoint’s first foray into eClosing, a decision driven by the efficiency that digital transactions bring to the customer experience.
Leo Moranti, SVP of National Closing Operations at OriginPoint, explains, “Nothing is more important than providing our customers with the best experience possible. Today’s borrowers demand technology that alleviates pain points commonly encountered during closing. There’s an opportunity to digitize traditional, paper-based closings and make the entire process more efficient. OriginPoint’s partnership with Stavvy delivers a different level of convenience and flexibility by offering fully digital transactions. There’s also the added peace of mind that every closing is safe and secure. We’re excited about the experience this delivers to borrowers.”
